Heidi Snell is a 7 year-old cutie with her sights set on the crown – the 2009 Cushing Community PRCA Rodeo Princess crown, that is.

Heidi is the daughter of Jason and Erin Snell and the granddaughter of Lonnie and Betty Rush of Cushing and Bob and Martha Snell of Sand Springs.  She attends school in Agra where she will be a second grader this fall.

With a shy grin, Heidi said she has been riding for 2 years and that it was her “daddy” who taught her.  When asked how she feels about being in the competition she said, “I like it!”

Not only does she enjoy riding her horse and competing in the Edmond Rodeos in barrels and poles, she has played T-ball for the past three years, attended basketball camp for one year and cheerleading camp for two years. 

Heidi said she loves “all kinds of animals” and wants to grow up to be a “real cowgirl.”
